My Favorite Things

I love water and I love parks (old parks with character, that is). Fort Tryon Park, a.k.a. The Cloisters, in Upper Manhattan provides the best of both worlds with amazing terraced parkland and an incredible view of the Hudson River. As a side note, all the Law & Order franchises love to shoot up there.

I've contemplated many things staring out onto the Hudson from Fort Tryon's vantage points. I've held hands with my wife there, taken my little dachshund on long walks (begrudgingly because he's easily distracted), played catch and Frisbee with my son, and this past summer shared an ice cream cone and played "kickety-kick ball" there with my daughter.

At the beginning of the month I had a photo shoot and needed a location. What better place than one of my favorite places in Manhattan? The good people over at Judith Filgueiras Weinberg Photography took care of me that day. Below are some of my favorite shots from the shoot. I figured I'd post these to show a man can and should have a few positive escapes. And if you're stuck at your desk as you look at these pics and regret being there, then try to get out more.

Peace.
